|Project Title||Post Date||Summary|
|Pan-Territorial Adaptation Initiatives||02-17-2012||
Addressing climate change and identifying approaches for supporting current and future climate change adaptation projects across the Canadian Arctic.
|Research on Arctic marine mammals||03-06-2012||
Research on Arctic marine mammals via the collection of detailed empirical information throughout Canadian Arctic marine ecosystems, using a variety of methods including both scientific and local knowledge.
|Impacts of climate change for the marine Arctic||03-06-2012||
Some implications of climate change for the marine Arctic ecosystem are fairly intuitive. For instance, polar bears and ringed seals are bound to be negatively impacted by the loss of ice that provides the physical platform for their hunting and reproduction. Other consequences are less obvious.
|Impact of climate change on the life of the Arctic Ocean floor||03-06-2012||
Climate warming is driving a rapid transformation of polar ecosystems, and we urgently need to study the vulnerability of seafloor biodiversity to changes that are already underway.
|ArcticNet Integrated Regional Impact Studies (IRIS)||03-16-2012||
ArcticNet brings together scientists and managers with their partners from Inuit organizations, northern communities, federal and provincial agencies and the private sector to study the impacts of climate change in the coastal Canadian Arctic.
|Effects of climate change on the Arctic wildlife||04-09-2013||
Many northern ecosystems are undergoing major shifts related to climate change.
|Linking changes in the Arctic marine ecosystem to the provisioning of ecosystem services and Inuit wellbeing||02-16-2015||
Climate change pressures, such as warmer temperatures and sea ice decline, transform the Arctic marine ecosystem and could lead to major shifts in its functioning. This study will combine diverse but complementary methods to study the Arctic marine ecosystem and itsinterconnectedness with Inuit communities in the context of a changing Arctic.
|Climate Change Adaptation for Nunavut Decision Makers Course||03-27-2015||
This course informs government staff of climate change impacts and how to incorporate climate change into deision-making across all government sectors.
|How does climate change and vegetation growth affect snow properties and permafrost temperature?||04-07-2015||
The properties of snow on the ground change over time and these changes are affected by temperature and wind, i.e. climate. Lemmings live under the snow and need to travel under the snow in search of food in winter. They are therefore sensitive to snow properties and climate change may strongly affect their populations, and of course also the populations of their predators.
|The People, Animals, Water and Sustenance Program||07-28-2016||
The People, Animals, Water, and Sustenance (PAWS) Project is interested in gaining a better understanding of the relationships Iqaluit Inuit have with dogs, water, and food. Currently there are gaps in our understanding of the interactions between dogs, water, and food in a Northern context. In-depth interviews on these topics coupled with sampling of dog feces, water, and clams will help us understand how these relationships interact together and how these relationships may be changing.
